Haredi Jews in Israel

I just watched this really interesting documentary on the Haredi Jews in Israel. It is titled "Haredi: The Ultra Orthodox Society in Israel". One of the women in it was a daughter of Rav Ovadia Yosef who was responsible for starting a college to give Haredi University level education. It also brings out the problem of Haredi men who don't work or have a trade except for studying Torah. This has created real problems for Haredi and Jewish society. I noticed the last time when I was living in Israel in 2008 that many Haredi had taken up handy man jobs etc on the advice of their Rabbi which seems a good step in the right direction.
